​The path of the philosopher

The Perfect Seeker (bodhisattva) who has a good intellect, is untiring, loving, of good repute, and well-endowed with knowledge of good methods, becomes an excellent philosopher; when he teaches, he shines brilliantly among the people just like the sun.

Excellence of a philosopher has five causes, and its benefit is sun-like brilliance, as such a person is greatly admired for his inspiring of the world. The five causes of the excellence of a philosopher are that he teaches without confusion, repeatedly, without exploitive motivation, with acceptable expressions, and in attunement to the disciples.
